Flying the day before I defend my dissertation

Tomorrow is the day that I end my journey for the elusive Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). It has been a long hard road where I learned a lot of lessons, not all of them good. I have had lots of support from friends, family, and strangers. I am humbled by it all. 

I love this quote because although it talks about gold medals, any prize can be inserted and the meaning remains the same.

Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
